The name is a bit of a misnomer. But it’s an enticing one, particularly for those of us with a passion for classic modes of dress.
Save Khaki United is a producer and retailer of men’s sportswear with a fairly minimalist aesthetic–all of which is manufactured in the United States. In the company’s own words, “Save Khaki United (is) a men’s lifestyle brand of contemporary American sportswear emphasizing comfort & fit.”
The company was established in 2006 by David Mullen, a retail veteran with significant production experience at a variety of clothing giants, including Banana Republic.
Despite the company’s name, not everything it sells leans completely toward the classics. But a number of items would fit well in a classic wardrobe.
This past summer, I bought my son a nautical striped Save Khaki t-shirt for his birthday. He speaks well of it and has worn it semi-religiously ever since.
